We'll see if I can help. At the beginning I'll rather focus on working with Gerrit and JGit
itself but once I have an
experience with both maybe I could help with your work.

Actually, I wasn't clear in my original e-mail. By working on Gerrit I meant that I'll be
an intern at Google and I'll
be working together with Shawn Pearce on Gerrit project. This will be full time job (but only
for three months) so I'll
have a chance to set up Gerrit here at Apache and fix any issues we encounter.

As I said. At the beginning I'll focus on my job but in around 6 weeks I'll be probably more
free and experienced with
internals of JGit and then we'll see.

At the moment I'll suggest that we stay focused on one thing: Gerrit.
